It's the expose to end all exposes--the truth about the suburbs: where they planted trees and crabgrass came up, where they planted the schools and taxes came up, where they died of old age trying to merge onto the freeway and where they finally got sex out of the schools and back into the gutters. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

God bless Erma Bombeck. We are so lucky that her comedic gift lives on in her wonderful books. These books are best described as "slice of life" vignettes of the day-to-day experiences of American identity, through the eyes of one of the most influential people in the world---a mother.
And this one is as good a book as any to start with.
It was a sad day for all her fans when Erma went to her reward 20 years ago (in 1996). Her delightful outlook on life's everyday happenings will make you laugh at yourself and at mundane everyday situations, she will make you cry with sympathy and empathy, and best of all, she will make you think.
Don't be surprised to find yourself laughing and crying at the same time.
Read this. You won't be disappointed.
Took me right back to growing up there and the strange thing
of most mothers not having a car to use all week so the few
that did drove everyone everywhere. Fun fun times.
